A harsh contest environment with bowl competitors fighting for a win? Hell no. Everyone had a blast, pushed themselves, and cheered each other on. What a great comp. Thanks everyone!
Now that the dust has settled take a look at some of Rhino's photos from last weekend's contest at Hastings.
Great weather, beautiful women, amazing Canadian hospitality, insane skating, and one of the gnarliest slams of all-time. This one had it all, with Alex Sorgente taking home the prize. Chalk up another epic contest to Vans.
Crusty, homegrown spots aren't new, and yet they're one of the most interesting and vibrant things going on in skating today. This essay and photofeature looks at the appeal of DIY skating. Long live 'crete!
Front loaded four gnar Brazilians, Greyson, Weird Al, Raney, the Thrasher crew and mega miles. Well, it's not for the meek. Road dogs rule the wasteland bro. See ya next year, RTMF.
The second half of the trip Durban to Cape Town got heated. More road miles, skate camps, pools, and handrails. Cory gets a trick in Birkenstocks? And it ts a wrap.
Didn’t get enough with the magazine article, web videos, and yardsale? Well, here's some more South Africa stoke.
Cape Town was the last spot and the crew rolled through, got some good shit, and then headed home. We fucking made it!
Rhino brings you this week's 'five' with David Loy, Dolan Stearns, Raney Beres, Raven Tershy, and Grant Taylor.
Out of the Valley and right into an epic backyard pool. Raney, Raven, Ronnie, Cory, and Grant ripped this gem.
This is one of the craziest ditch sessions we've ever seen. So sick. The crew handled it in the heat and then went off to the land of a thousand valleys for more skating and a BBQ.
Cory Kennedy, Grant, Ronnie, Raven, and Raney together in the wild of South Africa? WOW. The crew kicks things off in Johannesburg before spending the night in Kimberley.
A full week of edits from one trip? With this crew, you're damn right: Cory Kennedy, Grant Taylor, Raven Tershy, Raney Beres, Ronnie Sandoval and Pat McClain. Even we can't wait to see the final edit on these.
Grant, Raven, and Raney continue their Georgian destruction with a scorching pit session. Fire Walk with Me...
A good ramp session always involves skaters pushing each other, but this one gets wild. Grant, Raven, Raney, Plunkett and others do some sick transfers and wall-crawls. Thanks for the trip, guys.
